Helmar Halloween Howler Blog Hop

Welcome to Helmar's Halloween Howler Blog Hop!!! If you've just hopped in from the very talented Gayle's blog, then you've made it halfway through and are well on your way! If you just happened upon my blog and want to join in on the fun, we're more than happy to have you along. Just go back and start at Helmar's blog and make your way to the end. There are tons of prizes at stake, so be sure you leave comments on all of the blogs along the way.

I am featuring Helmar Foam Zapdots and Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue on my projects. I love the levels of dimension that the zapdots allow me to achieve. The acid free glue is specially made for book binding and doesn't leave my projects feeling stiff.

I traced one of the the ghost pages from a Nikki Sivils chipboard album to create this Happy Howl-O-Ween card. I inked strips of white cardstock and used Professional Acid Free glue to randomly place them across the card. I used foam Zapdots on a few of the strips to add dimension.


supplies: cardstock- American Crafts; ink- Clearsnap; rub-on- Melissa Frances; googlie eyes- Nicole Craft; Adhesive- Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue, Helmar Zapdots

For this Frankenstein card, I used foam Zapdots to pop up the eyelids and nose for dimension. To create the hair, I used Martha Stewart's icicle punch and black cardstock.

Inside of the card reads: "Wishing You A Monster-rific Halloween".


supplies: Cardstock- Worldwin, Bazzill, American Crafts; stickles- Ranger; border punch- Martha Stewart, ink- clearsnap; silver paper- Creative Imaginations; Adhesive- Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue, Helmar Zapdots

This last project was created for one of Helmar's Preferred Partners, Purple Cows. I used the 2-in-1 trimmer along with Partner Products from Cosmo Cricket, Clear Scraps, Clearsnap, magic mesh to scrap these photos of my son from last Halloween.

I used more foam zapdots to give the bat a little lift.

I even added in a little 450 Quick Dry--it's perfect for adhering acrylic elements.

supplies: patterned paper, stickers- Cosmo Cricket; acrylic frame- Clear Scraps; ink- Clearsnap; mesh- Magic Mesh; pen- Marvy; trimmer- Purple Cows; Adhesive- Helmar Zapdots, Helmar 450 Quick Dry, Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue
